Security issue perhaps on BT. I was signed out of BT and as soon as i signed in google alerted me there was a data breach somewhere and my saved passwords could be compromised. So i had them all removed. UGH. I don't know which site is compromised or if it was google's issue, but just an FYI.

I've had that happen and it is such a headache. Hopefully nothing important was breached.

Not knowing what was breached is really annoying! Seemed easiest just to remove all saved passwords from google which seems to have removed from the sites. I hope.

I use roboform and lastpass and recently have been auditing my passwords and changing the easy ones to something ridiculous. It's only annoying on my phone when I need to enter a PW but I figure better safe than sorry.

Congrats on the MTB purchase!  They are fun.

Should I not tell you that I've had more stitches/wounds from MTB-ing than road riding?  The worst led to the best quote of all time: "I've got a hole in my leg and I'm not stopping until I get to the truck!"  That was me, pedaling past my husband (he was waiting at the bottom) as I finished going down the hill after crashing nastily, leg and arm fully bleeding, sock and shoe red.  I could've laid my pinky finger in the gash in my leg.  2 internal and 4 external stitches if I recall correctly.  Of course we were in the middle of nowhere, basically, and it was about an hour drive to the doctor.




I can relate....I was pedaling in a narrow chute on Friday - Big rock on one side, drop off on the other so I leaned into the rock. The rock left a 2 inch slice in my arm. It wasn't that bad but it was deep enough that it started gushing until I could stop and bandage it up so it looked worse than it was.

Fast forward to today, I have on order a whole BUNCH of stuff to restock my completely dried out first aid kit including:
Disinfectant wipes
alcohol wipes
triple antibiotic ointment
Benadryl
bug sting wipes
medical tape

PSA - check your first aid kits

and I had to order in bulk so now I'll have kits for each car, each camelbak and my hiking pack

Capital One credit card offered me free credit monitoring, and part of that program is alert of breached sites, and whenever/wherever my e-mail or SSN was exposed. It gives me the exact Web site where the breach happened, or where my e-mail appeared. The latest one was the Evitebrite or whatever that is that people use to invite kids to other kids birthday parties. Which is annoying, and after seeing that now it even had a breach with my e-mail I think next time a parent wants to send me an invite for kids' b-day party I will just ask for details in text message....

I hope none of your accounts got in trouble!

Ahhh MTB wounds and scars... my friends are joking that the skin on my left arm and elbow should now be so thick and strong I won't need a pad.... For some reason I always fall and thorn left arm and elbow. I need to buy knee pads, though. The routes here in Colorado, are much more ...obstacle intense... than in midwest, and I should protect at least the knees.

Proof of life and apologies for radio silence.

I have moved to Denver area few months ago, and we love it soooo much! Immediately after moving I kept inviting all myfriends and relatives to visit*, as this area is just so beautiful and full of activities.
*(with all health precausions)
So now every other weekend someone visits me, and takes so much energy out of me I don't want anymore guests.... haha at least for a month or two I am just not used to visitors, usually people visitied me for few hours, maybe twoce a year. having someone at my place for few days, and taking them for hiking trips every day is exhausting. They were also not as fit, so we either had to do very easy routes, or the hike was taking forever.
Anyways, I don't want to sound selfish, and complaining too much (as I consider myself a non-complaining and always happy person), but I truly am exhausted... and I would love to focus on training much more.

Also... Manatees are always welcomed! I can only imagine a visit of a member of this group would exhaust me in a way I actually enjoy

Brooks runners -- I just ordered some closeout Ghost 12's from Running Warehouse for $99.88 (from $130).  They seemed to have a decent amount of stock.

I will be moving soon.  The plant that I work at in Oklahoma announced two weeks ago that it will be closing in 6 months. My choices are to relocate to our corporate headquarters in Houston or find another job.   I considered looking for jobs into the Denver Area. My maternal grandparents lived there while I was growing up.  Grandpa passed away 4-5 years ago (and grandma when before he did) so I don't have grandparents there anymore but it is a lot closer to my in-laws in Wyoming and my three siblings in Utah.  Since Ventum Bikes relocated to Heber City, Utah last year I thought I should see if they are hiring if I wanted a change and nothing was in Colorado.  If they aren't hiring EVNE Composites is in Ogden, Utah and would be another ideal option cuz what I really need is a job that pays me to think about ways to make bikes faster all day long.  My work has transformed my twice previously in my career.  The first time was from Tulsa, OK to Marble Falls, TX.  Moving from a big metropolitan to a town of 5,000 people threw a wrench in endurance sports training. Finding new places to train, new people to train with, new races to train for etc set me back about a year.  It was like having a Corvid-19 year only it only effected me and not the people around me.  Then I was transferred back to Oklahoma to a town of 18,000 people.  I again was set back in the transition looking for places to train, people to train with, and races to train for. So...I am not looking forward to having to move but it will bring different opportunities along with the different challenges.  I should have access to a real pool after the move which would be exciting for me.  I am not sure how time, schedules, and other aspects of making a training plan will be affected but that is all part of the adjustments.
